A Hayward middle school and a nearby elementary school were placed on lockdown this morning after two robbery suspects trying to evade police ran through the middle school campus, police said. An armed robbery was reported at 10:30 a.m., and when police responded and located the two suspects, the pair ran from them through Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School at 26890 Holly Hill Ave., police said. That school and nearby Southgate Elementary School at 26601 Calaroga Ave. were placed on lockdown. The lockdown was still in place as of about 11:30 a.m., but it was expected to be lifted shortly, employees at the schools said. The two suspects were taken into custody after the pursuit, police said.
